Alpenglow Luxury Camping is perfect for a party of two, with tents that accommodate a pair comfortably. Upon request, we can accommodate up to three people in a luxury tent with an additional charge of $30 for the third person.
Our traditional-style canvas tents are set on a permanent cedar floor with an 8′ covered porch and include plenty of blankets and a comforter to keep you cozy at night. Two Adirondack chairs allow you to enjoy the spacious deck and beautiful views of the Matanuska Glacier and valley.
Our tents do not have electricity, but you are welcome to charge electronics in our dining area, just a short walk down the path from your tent. In addition to our dining area, this area includes a lush green lawn and campfire area. Nestled in nearby trees is our wood-burning hot tub with great views of the nearby peaks.
Our cute and tidy outhouse is just a short walk from the tent. Flushing toilets are also available for use just two minutes up the path.
